...I do adore this Haut-Brion. The nose is heavenly with tobacco, earth, hot bricks, wild hedgerow, a touch of black olive (less than other bottles) with brilliant definition. The palate is medium-bodied, less precocious than say Latour or Mouton '82, more open-knit and accessible, quintessential Pessac that embraces that warmth of the growing season and infuses the delectable bouquet with nuances such as smoke, dried herbs, cigar box and a touch of rosemary. After an hour in the glass it is building and building. Divine. Drink now-2020+ Tasted March 2009. Neal Martin (eRobertParker.com)

Purchased this from the Wine House in Los Angeles in Aug 25,2015. I was somewhat ambivalent upon my purchase when I noticed the low shoulder and evaporation. I talked to a gentleman there who indicated that it was customary of 82s to have certain levels of evaporation and reassured me that the bottle was fine. Needless to say it was THE MOST DISGUSTING BOTTLE I HAVE EVER PURCHASED. THE WINE TURNED AND WAS ESSENTIALLY URINE. ASIDE FROM A VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE AND SWEET SALES PERSON I WILL NEVER SET FOOT IN THAT STORE. BEWARE OF THE SKUM AT THE WINE HOUSE IN LOS ANGELES!

This was pretty decent @burdigalanyc the other night, showed some glimmer of youth, with loads of complex tertiary. Excellent energy and all around pleasantry, showing it's pedigree in spades. #1982 #hautbrion

Everything in the right place for a mature Bordeaux. Big but not showy. Sexy but not slutty. What truly great wine should be.

'82 Vintage. I am not such a fan of the '82 vintage in Bordeaux. IMHO, wines are tight, impenetrable and concentrated. I really struggle to find them appealing today. This Haut Brion is closed as a coffin but you can definitely foresight a spectacular wine, a monster. Color is deep, very far of what you should expect for a 33 years wine. Nose is dense, cola, mature cherry, meaty, bacon and smoke. Everything in a spectacular proportion. Palate is tight, firm tannins perfectly integrated, beautiful acidity and bright fruit. This is almost impossible to believe. Please unwind in my lifetime...... #hautbrion
